Peter Nygard, the flamboyant Canadian fashion tycoon, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and stiff financial penalties in the Bahamas over a long-running dispute about environmental degradation at his lavish seafront resort.

But Nygard remains in Canada, beyond the immediate reach of Bahamian authorities, and he has told the Supreme Court of the Bahamas he is too ill to travel.

He has also instructed lawyers in the Bahamas to file an urgent appeal of the new decision, which includes a $5,000 per day penalty for failing to comply with its orders, including a “fully written apology to the Court,” according to his Winnipeg lawyer, Jay Prober.

“The decision is unfair, it’s unreasonable and it’s unnecessary, and quite frankly it’s unheard of,” Prober said in an interview Monday. “I have never seen in civil contempt proceedings a jail sentence or a fine of that magnitude.”

If Nygard fails to pay the US$150,000 fine within a week, the jail sentence increases by a month, according to the Nov. 15 ruling by Judge Ruth M.L. Bowe-Darville.

Nygard’s Bahamian lawyers will be asking for a stay so they can argue an appeal before Nygard is forced to comply, Prober said.

The ruling relates to a contempt finding against Nygard over his use of improperly obtained emails that were the subject of an injunction earlier this year in New York, and for failing to appear in court to answer contempt findings.

But those issues are mere details in the broader controversy, an epic battle with the government of the Bahamas and his neighbours over his construction activities on the spit of land on the western tip of New Providence known as Nygard Cay. Nygard is alleged to have illegally dredged the sea floor and expanded the size of his property with illegal construction on Crown land.

A key adversary is his neighbour, Louis Bacon, an American hedge fund billionaire with a property in adjoining Lyford Cay. Their dispute now involves many lawsuits in multiple jurisdictions, and salacious claims in court documents about a plot to send hitmen after Bacon, the founder of Moore Capital Management. Nygard has denied this.

Once described as the polyester king, Nygard was born in Finland to a family that immigrated to Manitoba when he was a child. After studying business, he started working at Eaton’s, learned retail, then bought a stake in a small company that he built into a retail clothing empire.

Bahamian court sentences Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard to 90 days in prison

  Bahamian court sentences Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard to 90 days in prison Peter Nygard, the Canadian fashion designer, has been sentenced in his absence to 90 days in prison and fined US$150,000 by a judge in the Bahamas. In a ruling Friday, the Supreme Court of the Bahamas found the designer in contempt of court over a case involving emails allegedly stolen from an environmental non-profit based on the island. The non-profit, Save the Bays, had taken Nygard to court in 2013 over what it said was illegal dredging near the fashion designer’s New Providence, Bahamas home. The designer has been accused of enlarging the cay around his luxury home without official permission, and the work has been at the centre of a bitter, long-running legal battle.

A SAVE the Bays lawyer argued yesterday that Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard should spend nine months in prison for his latest contempt A lawyer for the fashion mogul sought an adjournment, arguing they had insufficient time to prepare for litigation and that Mr Nygard was too ill to attend the

Now in his late 70s, he has a reputation as a lifelong hedonist and womanizer that buoyed the public image of his clothing lines through the 1980s and ’90s, but no longer carries the rakish charm it once did.

In 1980 he was charged with the rape of an 18-year-old woman, but was not tried or convicted, and reportedly said the police showed “poor judgment investigating the case.” He also settled with three women who filed sexual harassment complaints in Manitoba.

He has had lawyers bring an objection on Charter grounds to a blood test in a paternity dispute. And a child support case was settled in 2004 amid intense publicity over the mother’s demand for nearly $70,000 a month for the then-teenaged son.

Nygard Cay, which in 2018 was seized by Bahamian authorities as part of the legal dispute, although it remains in Nygard’s ownership, was the crown jewel of his empire. Styled as a Mayan palace, it was the site of modelling shoots for the various Nygard fashion lines and elaborate parties with celebrity guests including Prince Andrew, the playboy royal whose friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is currently plaguing the British Royal Family.

Former B.C. military leader faces jail time for child pornography possession

  Former B.C. military leader faces jail time for child pornography possession "Obviously this is a disturbing situation," DND Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Doug MacNair told Global News. "It's not conduct we would expect from the member of the Canadian military particularly those that rise to a high rank."Parker was set for a three day trial on three charges (accessing, importing and possession of child pornography) in B.C.

Manufacturing methamphetamine is a felony that could carry a sentence of up 40 years in prison. A conviction of using drug paraphernalia could mean up to 20 years in prison, according to the Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard says he is too ill to travel to Bahamas for jail sentence .

Fashion magnate Peter Nygard has been sentenced to jail time and fined US0,000 for dredging activities at his Bahamas estate. At the time, Nygard 's Winnipeg lawyer Jay Prober said Nygard was too sick to travel to the Bahamas and subsequently appealed the arrest warrant.

A fire ravaged the property in 2009. The legal proceedings over dredging were launched in 2013 by Save the Bays, at which Bacon is a board member. One complaint was that Nygard’s construction had impeded the natural flow of sand to a public beach.

Nygard has had an arrest warrant out for him since January, but he told the court he was unable to travel by air from Winnipeg.

“I do believe that the preliminary decision of his Canada-based physicians to ground him in Canada is in the best interest of his health,” wrote Dr. Lynwood Brown in an affidavit filed on Nygard’s behalf with the Bahamian court, according to a previous National Post report. “In particular, I believe that the air-pressure of flying at or over 30,000 feet in order to get to the Bahamas, could be fatal.”

No date has been set for an appeal.
